Wake Forest University Graduate Reviews

5 reviews
I arrived at the campus and all of the building and lawns were beautifully kept and maintained. It is quieter during the summer.The newly built business school is on the main campus contains all the latest technology and has so much to offer students.
They have a lot of resources for student career searches, the networking opportunities are amazing and because the school is smaller they focus in on the whole student and not just the grades. The program I am in at the graduate level has a 97% employment rate (within 6 months of graduating).
The student housing options are amazing! They have newly renovated homes and apartments for multiple people willing to have roommates. The campus and surrounding area is patrolled mostly in the evening and security is pretty pleasant.
The diversity on campus is decent for a PWI. The athletics and party scene are okay. I recommend getting involved and staying busy on campus to increase perspective employment instead of focusing on nightlife.

I am a graduate student at Wake Forest University. Wake Forest certainly enthralls prospective applicants with a beautiful campus and respectable reputation. However, this school has largely become focused on shaking students for whatever pennies they are worth, at the detriment of the student well-being and academic experience. The university has made efforts to restrict access to resources for many graduate and medical programs because they don't pay directly into the Wake Forest undergraduate system, even though they are a part of the university. I cannot speak to the quality of undergraduate education but the overall culture is one that revolves around university income, not a friendly place for undergraduate students to prosper as budding professionals.
I am in the Wake Forest MBA program and it's amazing! Wake has seemingly unlimited resources. I love that I can email our librarian to get help any time I can't find something. The campus is beautiful. The professors are incredible.
